In this post, the Typical Student team selected for you 5 funny stories posted by students on social media. Enjoy!
#1 Are you at the house?
I’ll answer for my wife. I had gone to Home Depot to pick up a trailer hitch ball for my truck. I didn’t realize that they had different shaft sizes, and I didn’t know which size I needed, so I called my wife and this conversation took place:
Me: “Are you at the house?” Her: “Yeah, why?” Me: “Can you go out to the driveway and measure the hole in the bumper of my truck? It should be either 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch.”
There’s a pause...
Her: “Isn’t your truck with you?”
Yes. Yes, it was. That was how I had gotten to Home Depot. I forgot.
On the phone trying to describe where we are to her parents:
“We are behind the car that’s in front of us.”
I lost it.
My parents have an extremely ugly little dog. Like, this thing is unfortunate. A cross between a Chihuahua and some sort of lesser demon. Buggy eyes, underbite, just ugly. And she picks on my dogs, so she's not my favorite.
But this little creature adores my husband. One day, he came in to my parents' house from work (I was already there) and ugly dog runs up to him like she just won the lottery. He scoops her up, laughing, and completely without thinking, he said, "Ticktockmaven, why is it that only the ugly girls like me?"
There was dead silence, and his expression blanched in slow motion. It was like someone looking down and realizing they had **** all over the floor. I said nothing, just got up and walked outside, the sounds of his pitiful groveling following me. "Not you!! I didn't mean you!! Oh my God, I am so sorry, I didn't..."
I know he meant nothing by it, but to this day my entire family gives him **** for it. He definitely paid for the faux pas, lol.
In high school, my girlfriend said, "Do you know what I just realized? There's no state that starts with the letter F!"
We went to school in Florida.
Once I and my SO went for a walk around a local nature reserve.
On the way in we got a map given to us so we could navigate the area. Later on the walk, she is looking at the map and says to me "these maps really need a 'you are here' on them."
It took me a second to realize what she meant, so I explained that it's a handheld map and that it wouldn't be possible, it took 4/5 attempts before it clicked with her.
